Downstairs at Town Hall; enter on Seneca Street. Free, but reservations required.

Civics, Community, Media Library


What goes into making a neighborhood great and keeping it that way? With a proposed upzone in Seattle’s South Lake Union neighborhood and others, and lingering debate over past decisions, land-use issues are a popular and potentially polarizing topic these days. What lessons can be learned from past efforts, and how are citizen voices heard in the process? How should policymakers balance issues such as economic development, open space, densification, long-term growth, and neighborhood desires while keeping Seattle Seattle? Seattle Channel host Brian Callanan leads a live televised discussion about the rezoning of Seattle neighborhoods, featuring Seattle City Councilmember Richard Conlin; Vulcan’s Vice President of Real Estate Development, Ada M. Healey; Department of Planning and Development Director Diane Sugimura; and other leaders, critics and stakeholders, including YOU! Join us at Town Hall or online, where you can take part in the polls and voice your opinion via social media and e-mail. Seattle Speaks is a partnership of CityClub, Seattle Channel, and Town Hall.
Admission is free, but seating is limited, and advance registration is required at www.SeattleCityClub.org, or 206/682-7395. Doors open at 6 pm. Downstairs at Town Hall; enter on Seneca Street. Please note: Because this event is televised live, audience members are asked to take their seats by 6:30 pm for the 7 pm program.

    Since the demand for single family homes and townhouses seems to not being met here, a plan to make more family housing available for ownership across the economic spectrum is being left out of the conversation. From what I can tell single family houses are in much higher demand than what is available. And of course, all neighborhoods need open space and parks.

    It was very unfortunate that the campaign for one side of an issue continued to push their issue. I know you don’t believe in censorship, but that behavior makes a case for taking written questions only.
